    I misplaced my recipe for this dessert, so I tried this one. It's very good, a couple of different steps than my mom's (adding the milk & butter), but it still tastes the same. *I made this a 2nd time, only changing a couple things, and it came out even better, I think! I added 1 tsp vanilla, 2 Tbl coffee granules to 2 Cups water, baked at 325' for 40 mins.  -  14 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was awesome! I did change one thing: Instead of pouring hot water on top, I poured freshly brewed coffee. This made the cake have such a fantasic flavor. I can't wait to have it again.  -  21 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This makes a fantastically rich,fudgey chocolate pudding. The only change I made was that I put in just under one cup of hot water, just enough to turn the sugar and cocoa layer liquidy and nothing more. The sauce that formed was rich and thick...just perfect for my tastes  -  27 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
